All our colleagues across the Group play an important role in achieving our Vision and as we continue to evolve as a Group the opportunities to develop your career and be a part of our success continue to grow too. We aspire to be a magnet for talent and a place where colleagues choose to be, where everyone can enjoy a positive working environment that is inclusive, recognises performance and provides outstanding personal growth opportunities.
We want our people to love what they do, approaching their role with passion and commitment and placing personal values on building relationships both with our customers and with their colleagues. This is a challenging, yet exciting industry that attracts talented people who possess a desire to learn - providing in return an environment that encourages development, recognises and rewards performance and offers a wide range of benefits.
The Hendy Group’s illustrious family-led heritage stretching back for 160 years is why our customers keep coming back time and time again. Our forward-thinking, progressive outlook perfectly complements our values, with honesty, quality, care and customer service still at the heart of the company, as they have been since 1859.
Today, we deliver premium sales and aftersales service in over 80 sites along the South Coast, from Eastbourne to Exeter, and continue to strive towards our vision to achieve 100% positive customer and colleague experience. Quite an achievement and journey since we began selling bicycles all those years ago…
Engaging our colleagues allows us to share in our successes and keep everyone updated on company performance and plans for the future, whether that be sales, marketing or people related. We pride ourselves in our transparent approach to this which is demonstrated each quarter at our management conference.
Our Hendy Foundation has been set up as a dedicated charity foundation to provide grants to local projects, people, events and charitable organisations. Hendy Group donates £2 for every retail car it sells which in one year can create a fund of £50,000. The Hendy Group has always had strong foundations with the local communities in which it operates, and the Foundation provides the perfect umbrella for its charitable activities and invites customers and colleagues to get involved.
We are the premier family motor group delivering a 100% positive customer and colleague experience.
We are customer and colleague focused, professional, quality-driven, honest and fair in all that we do.
I love the fact that every day is different. I never really know what I’m going to get to do until I come in, which always makes it a challenging day but also very rewarding
We are proud of our learning and development hub in Portsmouth. The purpose-built Hendy Academy meets your development needs through workshops, coaching, online learning and on the job experience. Within the Academy, our advanced facilities and highly experienced training team support you every step of the way from your Induction programme through to programmes designed to set you up for success in your role at Hendy.
We recognise our investment in training enables skills development for everyone in order that we can be the very best at what we do. All our programmes are underpinned by our values and created in an environment that encourages shared learning and building strong relationships across the Group.
We have a range of benefits on offer to our colleagues, including annual leave that increases with service, company pension scheme, group life insurance and private health care. We have recently enhanced our maternity and paternity benefits and support our colleagues to ensure they can effectively balance their work and home life commitments. All colleagues have the opportunity to lease a new vehicle through our all-employee car scheme and for those eligible to a company car we partner with CBS solutions to provide a flexible car leasing scheme. We also offer a competitive finance rate on the purchase of a used car from Group stock, in addition to providing competitive rates on parts, tyres and servicing of vehicles for our colleagues.
As a Hendy colleague, you also have access to over 200 perks through Perkbox with hundreds of big brand discounts, a wellness hub packed with expert lifestyle and fitness classes, and premium rewards - all free for you to use.
Always on the lookout for talent, our colleagues can recommend a friend for employment at Hendy and receive up to £750... and if they recommend a friend to purchase a vehicle, they also receive a financial incentive.
Celebrating success and rewarding loyalty is underpinned by our Hendy values. Each month, we recognise excellence in customer service by awarding a member of the service advisor team for their great work. Our sales teams are incentivised and are eligible to take part in an incentive scheme that for the winners provides well deserved colleagues and their family an escape to an exotic luxury hide-away.
As testament to the loyalty of our colleagues, we are proud to say that we have over 5% of our colleagues who have worked with Hendy Group for over 25 years. Each year, we take our 25 year 'club' members and their partners on a day out. In recent years, this has included a day trip to the Isle of Wight, overnight accommodation, activities at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, and a party at Hever Castle.
